Each year, the BAC and Anthony Tappé provide one scholarship for an exciting study abroad program outside Paris, France. Selection is based on academic and practice standing, with preference given to advanced students of Architecture with excellent academic records and portfolio. This person must be a strong ambassador of the Boston Architectural College
Since 1923, The Fontainebleau Schools have brought together different artistic disciplines in order to explore new ways of seeing, thinking and making architecture. The presence of the American Conservatory represents a remarkable opportunity for the design students to explore the relationship between architecture and music, develop collaborative projects with composers, or simply enjoy listening to rehearsals and concerts. Architecture and music students live, dine, and work together. Housing and meals are provided within walking distance from the Chateau. In addition to artistic pursuits, a variety of French social, cultural activities are arranged for both architecture and music students.
The program for architects begins in Paris with seminars and visits over 5 days, which will prepare the students for the following weeks in Fontainebleau. During these 4 weeks, workshops, lectures, visits and studios will be in and around the Chateau Fontainebleau. Formal art disciplines such as drawing, watercolor, graphic design and theatre design will be practiced during the session. A 3-day final trip around the French countryside will acquaint students with some of the finest masterpieces of French art and architecture, both historic and contemporary.
